    Wrist Strap Recall

    No more how do i make my wrist strap strong no more im afraid my gf will break my tv with the wii mote. Nintendo have issued a recall of all wrist straps worldwide. Personally i think its a bit of a joke any person with half a brain would know if you swing as hard as you can and you let go the wrist strap is going to break. I guess nintendo got scared that some idiot who broke their tv was going to sue them *sigh* http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/technology/6182013.stm

    Some people are just really stupid! I honestly can't understand all these straps breaking and remotes being lodged in people's TV's!! I guess Nintendo are covering their backs and responding to the bad press. Fair play to them

    My dad keeps reading about the accidents and keeps saying 'Well dont smash the TV' as if me and my sister are idiots. It's so annoying...
    Well, hopefully these new 'super straps' will stop this

    I think it's crazy, I can't see how people are lettin go of them, me and my friends haven't been even close to letting go, I don't have the biggest of hands so my grip won't be as good as some people and even I haven't had any trouble when swinging the thing, can't understand it.

    Exactly. My hands are getting sweaty as anything, but I'm nowhere near letting them go at all. Except... forget it...

    It doesn´t really has to be that you trown the thing. My daughter stood to close to the table, and smashed the remote against it )playing bowling). Then the Wrist Strap broke. I called Nintendo asking where to buy a new one. They said they would send me a free one.....

    P.S.: The remote isn´t damaged.... lucky us!
